Weather,Water Temperature, and the spawn are in full force now

Thursday morning Marty ,Brian and myself headed out of Everett's resort around 8 ish. We fished several areas today and in most we got a keeper or two.  We pitched jigs ,Dubuque rigged and also pulled raps to catch our fish.  Best way was still dub rigging .  It was fun gentlemen and can't wait to hip check Brian when the trolling season rolls along here in the near future.  Brian is pictured with the biggest eye of the day. 

Friday I got out with a couple gentlemen from Caledonia, Mn. The bite seemed a little tougher on this date but we still seemed to put together the limit for Jeff and Dan to enjoy for dinner.  With the water starting to recede I can see the bite really picking up the next couple days.  It was fun seeing you guys again been many many years .  Jeff I will stop by to look at grandpas house next time I'm in town. Thanks guys for he memories. 

Saturday I had Bryan, Donny, And Troy in the boat.  We Dubuque rigged all day today and it was the right choice of technique to catch everyone's limit today.  The biggest trick today was getting the boat control to where we needed it to  put the fish in the boat.  Donny really made up for his low contribution from last year by kicker everyone's butt this year. Way to go bud it just takes time to get the right feel on this technique.  

By the way Bryan and Troy did not fall to far behind on fish today either they are all learning quickly.  The only thing we had a problem with at times was feeding the Walleyes without seeing them come to the boat.  It was an absolute blast gentlemen and I look forward to our outing every spring.  

The river is starting to fall now so you will have to adjust.  The laxity is awesome for spring tie fishing. And the water temperature is going to rise pretty quickly this week with the warmer temperatures in the forecast. Trolling the rig is right around the orner. Then dragging will pick up too.  

Good luck guys and and gals !!!!!!
